Get Well Soon

Hello Sweet Friends!  It's Sheri here today sharing a card featuring a couple images from the NEWLY released Sunflowers & Pumpkins Printable.  

I love creating cards with digital files and immediately fell in love with this adorable Sunflower and sweet bee from the set.  I first printed the images on my laser printer on heavy weight card stock and then used copic markers to color them.  The sentiment is actually from the Birds & Blooms stamp set.
 Don't forget that the Give Thanks stamp set is the August 2018 Stamp of the Month and is FREE with a $75 order (after all discounts and before shipping & tax) through 8/31/18.


 Happy Stamping!

I love Fall!

Hello friends, I have 2 cards for you today using our newest releases.  Fall will soon be upon us, can't you just smell that Pumpkin Pie Spice?  I can!
For my first card today I am using Incredibly Blessed by Rebecca Rios, I colored it up with my watercolors and the design paper is from Jen Hadfield.
This next card is using this adorable scarecrow from the set Happy Scarecrow also by Rebecca Rios.  I am in love with this guy, doesn't he just make you smile?  So fun to color too!  I colored him up with copic markers and the design paper is from my scrap bin.  The little piece of chipboard I have had in my stash for years and it has finally found a home.   You still have time to get our stamp of the month set called Give Thanks free with a $75 purchase (after discounts and before tax).
Happy Stamping!

Happy Fall!

Hello everyone! Today I want to share this happy fall card with you. And the 'Happy Scarecrow' stamp set is just perfect for a card like that :)

I stamped the image on marker paper and colored it with alcohol markers. I realized that I didn't have any red markers so I tried to work with green and yellow colors. I miss the red accents a little bit but I had to work with what I have. And on the other hand; a limited color pallet can be nice too. After I colored the images I cut them all out and started to arrange them the way I wanted. I die cut a circle from dark green paper and added that behind the scarecrow. The images of the leaves are behind that circle. This is an easy way to layer your stamps on your cards without having to deal with the masking. And you can still play around with your composition until everything is adhered.

I used a kraft colored card base and stamped a little texture on it with the Texture Tiles 1 stamp set. It's hard to see in the pictures but you can see it a little bit on the close up picture. It has a very subtle look that matches the patterned paper. To finish the card I added a couple of sequins and wooden buttons.
That's it for today! I used the stamp sets Happy Scarecrow and Texture Tiles 1.

I hope you're inspired to make your own cards :)
Have a nice day!

Give Thanks - Tags

Every year my women's club hosts a luncheon to fund raise for an awesome organization called For Her Glory. They provide wigs and such for women with cancer who can't afford them otherwise.

We each host a table that we decorate and sell seats to and then we lunch. It is a wonderful day full of friends and fellowship.

Here is our table setting.

We had a small gift for our friends:

I used Distress Oxides to match the colors from the dishes and the combination of the new GIVE THANKS set and the SO THANKFUL set was PERFECT for my "thank you" tags.

I hope you are inspired! Thanks for stopping by!!

Incredibly Blessed

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Stampers
It's Ceal, here to share a non traditional fall card with you today.
To create my card I used the Incredibly Blessed set along with the All About You for the greeting.  

To create my card I started with a white top folding note card along with a white panel cut down with a stitched die. I created the background with a piece of cheese cloth and  Carved Pumpkin distress Oxide ink. I stamped the pumpkin image and then again on a scrap piece of paper, colored it using Copic Markers and then adhered it on to of the image I stamped. To finish the card and add texture I paced a small piece of the cheese cloth I had used for the background underneath the pumpkin.

Happy Scarecrow

Good morning! Today I have two cards to share using some Sweet ‘n Sassy stamps from the August Release. Here I used Happy Scarecrow and Texture Tiles 2.
For my first card, I stamped the scarecrow in the middle and masked him. Then I stamped the stone texture image and sponged it with gray ink. The top was sponged with a rays stencil. How cute is this happy scarecrow?

The leaves and pumpkin were popped up.

My second card is CAS. I simply stamped in black and layered on the colored elements.

Have a great day!

Happy Scarecrow Shaker

Hello! It's Monika here today with a shaker card. Have you noticed that I LOVE making shaker cards? It's true... it adds so much to a card, and I love the movement!
I decided to use the cute scarecrow from Happy Scarecrow clear stamp set. It was the perfect focal point to my Fall shaker card.

I started with stamping the images on water color card stock and coloring them with Kuretake Gansai Tambi water color. I stamped some extra pieces of the scarecrow (hat, flower, pockets, the ham of the pants, and the sleeves of the coat) and after cutting all the images out, I adhere the extra pieces onto the main scarecrow image... some with dimensional tape. Can you see the dimension those pieces added to my card?

The background was made with pigment powder, coffee filter and photo paper (check out the tutorial on SplitCoast Stampers). It's a super cool technique and pretty easy to make...
The shaker was filled with sequins and micro beads. I also placed some small stamped leaves inside the shaker. 
The greeting is from Keep in Touch Too clear stamp set. I wanted this to be a 'neutral' card I could use for any reason/occasion during the Fall season, hence the simple greeting...

Thanks for stopping by,

Being Fruity

Hello sweet friends!  Cathy here with two cards using a fun new stamp set released this month, Fruit of the Spirit!

I took the strawberry in the Fruit of the Spirit stamp set and dipped it in chocolate...SWEET!

The background was created with one of the stamps in the Texture Tiles 1 stamp set and a little Glossy Accents was used to make the chocolate nice and shiny.  Add a few sprinkles in the shaker card and you have one SWEET card!

The background on this card features the pineapple from the Fruit of the Spirit stamp set.  The splatters were made with one of the stamps in the Texture Tiles 1 stamp set.  The flamingo from the Be a Flamingo stamp set just dropped in to say, "hello!"  The letters in the sentiment are from the Sunshine Girl Alpha.  The design for this card comes from the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge.

Next time you are feeling a little fruity...just reach for the Fruit of the Spirit stamp set from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!

Autumn Blessings

Hello Sweet Friends!  It's Sheri here today sharing an Autumn themed card I created using the NEW Happy Scarecrow stamp set.  

I fell in love with all the different leaves in the set and decided to create my own background with them.  I picked a few of the different sizes/shaped leaves and randomly stamped them before coloring them with copic markers.  I then stamped and colored the pumpkin before fussy cutting it out so I could pop it up under the sentiment to create the focal layer.

 I have one more to share...

Earlier this month I created this card featuring the super cute Scarecrow in the set.  I kept the layout CAS (Clean and Simple) and used copic markers to color him.  Isn't he a cutie?!?!?

Don't forget that the Give Thanks stamp set is the August 2018 Stamp of the Month and is FREE with a $75 order (after all discounts and before shipping & tax) through 8/31/18


 Happy Stamping!

Llama Love x 2

I have two cute cards for you today using this adorable Llama Love set by KorinSutherland. This set is just to cute for words!
For this first card I stamped and embossed the images, I had to do a little masking but not a lot.  I stamped and embossed the hats and fussy cut them.  The papers are from Echo Park.
For this card I wanted to use up some cute scraps that I had (I just hate throwing away cute paper don't you!).  All the paper is from Pink Pasilee.   Make sure you check out the whole release this month so many awesome sets!  Remember you can get this month's stamp of the month set- Give Thanks (shown below) when you spend $75 after any discounts and before shipping.
